While Vanuatu’s southern islands are called paradise, you could easily think Ambrym was the devil’s playground. Craig Cove is a sad mix of concrete buildings by a rocky bay where fishermen clean their fish, and the cargo boat Saraika lies half-submerged and rusting. By contrast, the people are fabulous, and as you travel south or north the landscape opens up. There are hot springs, attractive villages and a grand choice of kastom (traditional) activities as well as the trek to volcano territory.
